Terrell Hines shares new song and funky new video, ‘Radon Dungeon’
Pop visionary born in Georgia and based in Los Angeles Terrell Hines released his new single, “Radon Dungeon”. On the effortlessly fluid and funk track, Hines evokes visions of a toxic and worse storyline, but emerges with a beguiling anthem worthy of a post-apocalyptic nightclub.
As Substream Magazine observed upon the release of his debut EP in 2019, he is “an artist who knows there is nothing he cannot turn into a song”. The accompanying visualizer, which was shot in her hometown of Atlanta, was directed by Jelani Miller (SoFaygo, Tony Shhnow, 10KDunkin).
“’Radon Dungeon’ is a fun underground space world for the socially excluded,” says Terrell Hines.
“Radon Dungeon” is the sequel to the euphoric “Who Do You Love?”, Which Netflix used to fuel its summer movie premiere. Hines, hailed as an “emerging artist in rupture” by Billboard, has already amassed over five million streams without releasing an album or touring the United States.In 2019, he appeared on Beck’s title track Hyperspace album and experienced a big boom after his song “Get Up” was used on an Apple Keynote.
In 2020, Hines released their first cassette, Portal One: the mixtape, a nine-track project that featured the raw energy of live instrumentation. Watching the events of the summer unfold prompted him to remix “Get Up,” adding a new verse from Vince Staples. NPR Music observed: “… in the context of this summer’s movement, lyrics like ‘I’ve waited my whole life’, along with the rousing drums and growing desperation in Hines’ voice, begin to take the form of screams for justice in a protest movement down a block. In October, he released the electrifying single “We’re All Gonna Be Killed”, which reflected “the tension of 2020 so far”.
Hines creates an entire ecosystem for his songs, where the sonic structures and lyrics are just as likely to be inspired by the socio-political as the personal, by functional architecture like abstract art, by the austere science of survivalism like the unlimited potential of technology.
